Do you plan to support Japanese keyboards?

    I am using 4 units of tinypilot in a Japanese environment.
    I am very satisfied with the functionality, but it does not seem to support Japanese keyboards, so I sometimes have trouble outputting "_" and other characters easily.

    Do you have an alternative plan to improve this situation, or do you plan to officially support Japanese keyboards?

      Hi @syutaro, I'm sorry that you've been running into this input issue.

      Yes! Improved Japanese keyboard support is coming. In fact, it's already in the pipeline and should be available in the next TinyPilot update. We had a report on GitHub about _ and input issues. So we worked with the user to find a solution.

      If you're desperate for support right now you can edit the files on your TinyPilot to match the changes we made.

      If there are other keys that aren't working, please let me know and I'll do my best to add support for them.

      Hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

          Hi @david

          That is wonderful news. We don't need your support right now. Looking forward to the update.

          Thanks for the reply!
